Kramer Elementary expansion

Kramer Plan.png
Our neighborhood public school will soon have a new wing with 12 new class rooms, to open in the fall of 2024.  It will be on the east end of the building (Tunica Drive), where the playground is.  The playground will be relocated to the north side of the building, next to the paved basketball area.  The playground will still be accessible to the neighborhood after hours and on weekends.

A small administrative area will be added near the front door, and the portable buildings in the rear will finally go away!  To see detailed plans, click

Please support our neighborhood with your membership

The Apartments proposed on LBJ from Preston to Hillcrest
 Our Association engaged in a 6-month "635 Corridor" study to guide future land uses on the south LBJ service road, from Preston Road to Hillcrest, which is now mostly 2-story offices.  Hillcrest Forest residents strongly opposed apartments there.
The study's final recommendation:  Low-density residential, low-rise offices, light retail, and green space that preserves the residential nature of our elegant community.

Members fund a rest area on the Northaven Trail

120 of our members collectively donated over $10,000 to fund a beautiful 3-bench seating area on the Northaven Trail, the hike & bike park that runs through our neighborhood.

Our association donated an additional $2,500 to the Trail for general improvements. 

The Northaven Trail is forever, and those 3 massive stone benches will be there for a very long time.
